SA needs revolution

Durban - A revolution is needed in SA, IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi (pictured)  said on Tuesday at the University of Zululand.

“It starts on university campuses, with thinkers and doers, with people of passion and action. It starts with your vote.The power is yours. Don’t let anyone tell you that the power belongs to politicians. You decide who should lead our country.”

Buthelezi suggested that while the ANC may be the ruling party, they were not leaders. “Leaders don’t allow the police to fire on striking mineworkers. Leaders don’t promise half a million jobs, then lose a million instead. They don’t give tenders to their cousins. We struggled for generations to secure the right to choose our own leaders. Now that we have that right, we must use it to choose leaders worthy of our support,” Buthelezi said.

He then moved onto the Sidikiwe Vukani! Vote No” campaign, initiated by former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils and former health deputy minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge. “These stalwarts of the ANC have recognised that something has fundamentally changed in the ruling party. Something has gone rotten. That is a grossly irresponsible message. We would be shooting ourselves in the foot if we didn’t give SA a better alternative. We must vote,” said Buthelezi.

He urged those in attendance to vote for the IFP, as the party understood that it existed to serve the needs of the public. “We listen when you speak and act on your behalf, to bring solutions. We are a strong opposition, holding a failing government to account,” he added.  Sapa
